|Song of Albion Trilogy
The Paradise War (paperback)
- Here is Lawhead's descriptive writing style at its best. The
Otherworld of Albion comes vividly alive and in sharp focus. What
I especially enjoyed was his ability to weave small Celtic folk tales
(whether traditional tales or his own creations, I don't know and
can't tell) into the fabric of the larger story. A deep sense of awe
pervades all his books, this book is no exception, and is fairly
tingling with wonder.
The Silver Hand (paperback)
- In the second of the series, Lawhead makes a change of narrators.
Included are many bardic tales, and a rich tapestry of character and
plot. Overall, what I remember most is a building sense of how the
Celtic mind viewed soveriegnty, and how this related to their view of
The Endless Knot (paperback)
- Lawhead continues the theme of illustrating the soverignty of God
through his character King Llew. His story telling is fast-paced,
vividly detailed, exquisitly rich. The ending brought me to tears as I
read it aloud to my husband and son, not because it is sad (although
having this wonderful story end is sad!) but because of a deep,
profound sense of joy....you have to read it to fully understand
what I mean...=)
